Learn to Love Yourself

There is exactly one person with whom you will share every moment of the rest of your life: you.

 

This can be a terrifying thought.

 

You might have a job, a family, and a nice place to live.  Your life may look good “on paper.” Sometimes you tell yourself that you “should” feel happy, but you don’t.  Or, perhaps you don’t have those things. You compare yourself with the people who do, and you believe that you don’t measure up.  Your thoughts are critical of you, and you feel distressed when you are in situations that force you to sit with them, like a long car ride or a waiting room.  You worry that others judge you as harshly as you judge yourself.

 

The Main Line, as well as center city Philadelphia, can be a competitive place.  Living and working here often demands a certain measure of confidence that can be challenging to find.  Learning to befriend that one individual with whom you will be spending the rest of your life is essential.

 

I provide psychotherapy services that are aimed at:

 

  • Strengthening your self-esteem and self-worth

  • Learning to view yourself less critically

  • Ceasing to blame yourself for everything

  • Prioritizing yourself

  • Engaging in self-care

  • Feeling empowered to claim some time and space for yourself
